Some homeowners like to think of their backyard as a personal vacation spot, while others see it as a place to share with friends and family. Homeowners in Central Florida, however, often find it to be the main culprit of a wildlife infestation. Here are three things that might be attracting wild animals to your yard.

Garbage Cans

You use garbage cans to, obviously, protect your garbage. A durable, tightly sealed trash can will get the job done by disguising odors through thick plastic or metal. However, an old trashcan with dents, holes, and cracks is going to leak and allow wildlife to easily access your trash. To prevent wild animals from shredding up your garbage and spreading trash throughout your yard, invest in a heavy-duty outdoor trashcan with an airtight lid.

Growing Trees

Take a look in any Central Florida yard and you’re likely to see trees, shrubs, and lots of plants. However, when you let your tree branches get too long, you start to send the wrong signals to nearby pests. Tree branches that extend over your roof provide quick access to animals like squirrels, raccoons, and rats. Luckily, you can keep your tree in tip-top shape and keep wildlife away by regularly trimming the branches.

Garden Produce

Wild animals take an interest in your garden for some of the same reasons that you do. Fruits, vegetables, and other tasty treats growing right from your backyard aren’t always easy to come by in the nearby wild, which is why local critters rarely hesitate to take advantage of them. To keep your garden free from roaming wild animals, try to pick up any fallen produce as quickly as possible, harvest your garden more frequently, and secure the area with a wildlife-proof fence.
